Carl is an active owner and developer-emeritus, providing oversight and counsel to the development team. He is a core developer of the Django Python web framework, an elected member of the inaugural Django technical board, ex-maintainer of the widely-used pip and virtualenv package management tools, co-author of multiple accepted enhancements to the Python language and ecosystem, and a Fellow of the Python Software Foundation. He is also a regular speaker at the annual Python and Django community conferences. When not chasing a more elegant algorithm, he chases frisbees, hockey pucks, and a pair of sons.
